    We were beyond happy with our choice of venue. The woman we worked with was incredible. When there were things I was forgetting she was right there to keep me on track. The venue was BEAUTIFUL, the food was incredible and the service was far beyond what we expected.

    We're already fans of Kimpton boutique hotels for their location, unique style, and extra amenities...but this venue was perfect for our small wedding of 60. We were really happy with the location and ballroom decor: the chandeliers and color scheme set a lovely scene.

    We were very happy to find a venue for everything, so that our out-of-town guests wouldn't have to worry about driving in the city or parking. Our guests were thrilled by the location and the FOOD! We also had a small morning-after brunch, at which the staff conveniently set up our leftover flowers and decor.

    The front desk reception was very kind and helpful to our family staying in the hotel, and the serving staff took great care of us during the entire wedding. My dear cousin specifically complimented the older bartender for knowing and preparing her drink order as she came up to the bar.

    Finally, Amanda was wonderful to work with throughout the planning process! My husband and I met with Amanda several times and each time she was extremely helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. By the date of our wedding, it felt like she knew us and our preferences...she had our drinks and appetizers set up in our room so that we could enjoy a few minutes of quiet before joining cocktail hour. She took care of so many details so that we could relax, enjoy our evening, and spend time with our guests.

    Writing for Silver Sound DJs an endorsement for Hotel Palomar, I have had the experience of twice entertaining Hotel Palomar wedding receptions. This Hotel is very new and has a delightful modern style with a touch of the Art Deco style. The decorum and design is very sharp for a signature event, where you want to impress with very pleasant surroundings. The staff are friendly and helpful, they work in tandem towards a pleasing experience for the client and guests. I have also stayed at the Hotel as a guest, the Hotel rooms are of the highest quality, with super design and furnishings. I think this Hotel is one of Philadelphia's greatest secrets. I look forward to entertaining at the Hotel Palomar again. Paul Evans - President and Founder Silver Sound Entertainment.
